Geology - mountains and oceans

Geology question: Does anyone know if there's a specific term for when mountains directly abut an ocean or sea? No beach, no shoreline, just the base of a mountain hitting up against an ocean. I feel as though I've heard of a term for this before but it's entirely possible that I dreamt it up.

Is there an alternative to harmful herbicides that will kill weeds but not harm backyard wildlife?

Is there an alternative to harmful herbicides that will kill weeds but not harm backyard wildlife? My yard is full of weeds. It looks awful.

Strange Tree. What is it?

I was at the Bogor Daily Photo blog earlier today and saw a picture of a 'Strange Tree' that one of the site's contributors, Alaya, posted with the words " found the tree with strange fruit on the road near botanical garden. anyone know what kind of tree is it? ". I waited the whole day but no answer was forthcoming . I thought it looks like a fruit-bearing parasitic plant that i might have seen somewhere before.The photo piqued my curiosity so I thought I will ask the Mefites. I am sure Alaya will be ever so thankful too. :)
